Join the bottle shop crew and Edgefield brewers for the latest limited-edition Edgefield bottle release, Cerberus Wild Ale. Here’s their blurb: Tart and funky, this three-headed beast is a blend of a Golden Ale, a Nectarine Brett Pale and Ginger Hibiscus Gose. All three beers were aged together for two years in the Cerberus barrel, a former Hogshead Whiskey Barrel from the Edgefield Distillery inoculated with a Belgian Wild Ale strain, Brettanomyces Bruxellensis, to create a pleasant and earthy tang that pervades this balanced beer. The Cerberus barrel has its own singular character, having housed Wild Ales over the past seven years.
